Qamka (Mastercraftsman) winning at Newcastle

Back-To-Back Wins For Daughter Of Mastercraftsman

Qamka (3f Mastercraftsman - First, by Highest Honor) defied a seven pound penalty to secure back-to-back wins at Newcastle on Friday.

Third on debut in May and successful the following month at Newbury, the Roger Varian-trained filly remained over the mile trip on her third start. Regular partner David Egan rode her to make all, driving the filly out as the favourite Millicent Fawcette produced a challenge two furlong out and his mount obliged, staying on well to score by three parts of a length.

Nurlan Bizakov’s homebred winner is a half-sister to five Stakes horses, including Australian Group 2 winner Au Revoir. Their dam, First, also won a Listed contest over a mile and was bought for 1,100,000gns in 2010.
